TPL is creating a space for the Tuscaloosa community to Build, Create, and Explore with technology and crafts. The Teen Zone Lab will be open every Thursday from 3-6pm.

TPL needs your help to make this happen! We are in need of many supplies to make our Lego-Land a realty, to explore new possibilities with our Makey Makey’s™, and to develop an environment to be creative learners.

The TPL Teen Zone is seeking sewing machines and accessories; tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, soldering irons, and wire; Legos™ of all shapes and sizes; batteries (9 volt and hearing aid/ watch batteries); functioning turntables/ record players with vinyl records (no collectibles, please); and both functioning and nonfunctioning computer components.

Please drop off items at our Main and Weaver-Bolden branches and mark the materials TEEN ZONE SUPPLIES. Help us make this a reality for you, the Tuscaloosa community. For more information, contact Pamela Williamson, Assistant Director of Public Services, at 205.345.5820 or
